The Coffee Planet Recordings

Live recordings from the Coffee Planet and beyond. All recordings uneditted. Not all really bootlegs in the truest sense, but one-of-a-kind recordings of musical events. There is something unique and pleasurable about live un-mastered, un-released, un-studioized recordings. Music hopefully captured close to its purest form next to being there live.

March 25, 2015 "I'm Looking for Names for this Guitar" (my title), live from Home Grown Hamilton. Freestyling duet with Darcy Hepner on sax and Rufus Cappadoccia on guitar (he also played cello during the show). Listen for Darcy drifting into a brief Beatles riff past the middle somewhere.
